‘American embassy and citizens are not secure’
* What did you expect? That’s what happens if you don’t eliminate your enemy. Â But its interestingÂ to see that this demented swine shills for every commie dictator from Cuba to South America…
JERUSALEM â€“ A convicted child-killing terrorist recently freed by Israel in a controversial prisoner exchange deal yesterday issued a threat against the U.S.
“If there will be an Israeli attack against Lebanon in the future, American citizens and the American embassy in Lebanon will not be secure,” said Samir Kuntar, who led a protest yesterday outside the U.S. embassy in Beirut.
Kuntar was release in July along with four other Lebanese convicts in a deal with the Hezbollah terror group that saw the remains of two Israeli soldiers returned to Israel. He was serving multiple life sentences in an Israeli prison for murdering three Israelis, including smashing to death a 4-year-old girl with the butt of his rifle.
In Lebanon, Kuntar now chairs the Lebanese Committee for Solidarity with Cuba, which is an organization that petitions for the international community to normalize relations with Cuba.
Kuntar organized a protest outside the U.S. embassy to petition for the release of Cuban prisoners being held in American prisons. There, he also called for solidarity with Venezuela and applauded the anti-American stances of Cuba and Venezuela.
Kuntar’s rally attracted only a handful of protestors. It was covered by local media outlets.

His threats against the U.S. embassy in Beirut may have particular resonance for some since it was the site of a massive Islamist suicide bombing in 1983 that killed over 60 people, mostly embassy staff members and U.S. Marines and sailors. It was the deadliest attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission up to that time.
On April 22, 1979, Kuntar led a group of four terrorists who entered Israel from Lebanon by boat. The four murdered a policeman who discovered them when they first entered Israeli territory.
The terrorists then raided an Israeli border town, breaking into an apartment and taking hostage 28-year-old Danny Haran along with his 4-year-old daughter, Einat. The mother, Smadar Haran, was able to hide in a crawl space above the bedroom with her 2-year-old daughter, Yael, and a neighbor.
Smadar accidentally smothered her daughter to death while trying to mute her cries. Kuntar shot Danny Haran to death and then beat to death Haran’s daughter with his rifle.
Over the years, Kuntar became a hero in Lebanon and in the Palestinian territories. His freedom was one of Hezbollah’s declared goals when the group raided Israel’s border in 2006, nabbing the bodies of two Israeli soldiers and prompting the Jewish state’s war that year in Lebanon.Â
